Caption: Laparoscopic robotic cancer surgery. Nurse with a Da Vinci robotic system being used to carry out cancer surgery in a patient's abdomen (camera view on screen). The equipment is being operated by a surgeon (not seen) at a nearby console. This use of endoscopic equipment to perform minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery in the abdomen is a form of laparoscopy. The da Vinci system allows the surgeon's hand movements to be replicated as smaller, precise movements of surgical instruments inside the body. The instruments are inserted through keyhole ports placed in small incisions in the patient's abdomen.
